Singapore Airlines Set to Sweeten Up Their SilverKris Lounges in 2013
Even some of the most luxurious and well appointed airport lounges need a fresh coat of paint every so often. That's why Singapore Airlines has revealed plans to completely overhaul their lounges across the the entire network. The airline is expected to spend around $20 million dollars on the complete refurbishment, so it's safe to say that we can expect more than just paint.
Without giving away too much, the architects of the project have been tasked with creating a "home away from home," so passengers can feel even more relaxed before heading off on a long-haul journey. All lounges will further improve the "ground to air" experience for passengers.
We dont know how they'll do it, but if they can improve on this lounge in Singapore, the outcome will be nothing short of stellar.
The first unveiling of the newly designed clubs will be in Sydney at the middle of 2013, with Melbourne a close second. As for that Melbourne lounge, it will not only see a fresh design but customers can even expect it to grow in size to add a dining area. All lounges will see the spruce-up so don't stress if you aren't going to be in Australia soon.
This news comes on the heals of the airline announcing they will refurbish all cabins of their long-haul aircraft starting with the new Boeing Boeing 777-300ERs and eventually moving on to other new aircraft they will receive during the year. All these changes will happen in the second half of 2013 so, if you are planning to fly with SIA, you may just find yourself in the lap of fresh luxury.
